I am looking to build a bass entirely out of one wood using a two piece bookmatched thru neck construction with the trussrod fitted into the side of each half before gluing (G and L style). This means the body, neck and fingerboard will be one material. I have been trying to decide on the best wood to use, several options have arisen with the most common being maple but such options as wenge and bubinga have come up. Does anyone have any suggestions or comments that could help. The weight of the bass is not an issue as the design is tiny and i have already figured out that if made out of maple it would weigh under 2kg with out hardware and electronics.
